Hand In Hand/Palliative Care

"It is an honor to be let in during a very difficult time, that families trust us when they are most vulnerable. It is very difficult, yet incredibly rewarding."Sue Bace, Hand in Hand coordinator

It’s how we’ll face the diagnosis – and the confusion, fear and heartache.
Together.
Hand in hand.

Our Privilege
Forming relationships with and supporting families after children are diagnosed with serious illnesses which may be life limiting or life threatening.

Our Promise
We will:
• Assist with the tough decisions
• Support your family’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs
• Dedicate ourselves to relieving your distress and adding quality to your child’s years
• See that your goals and wishes are honored – and that you can be the parent, not the service coordinator

Children's Hospital & Medical Center encourages you to utilize our award-winning palliative care program, a multi-disciplinary approach called Hand in Hand.
